there for a long time because it's a great company and provides great benefits,
are not provided. we do what we do extremely well, and given the number of cuts that have taken place in the last few years they're doing the most they can with very the money. i know there are efficiency here a lot of collaboration and coordination so i think the challenge we're talking about an amount of money that i think unfortunately has to be replaced. i don't think we can afford financially from a health care prospective and noting morally not to do that. i know we have worked with the mayor to make it possible. and consistent with this idea i continue to encourage the hiv and aid providers to continue to be involved in the budget process. he hopefully, we'll resolve this issue shortly but i hope once the issue is resolved you'll continue to advocate for other population it's not just the hiv and aids community we're talking about here. there are many other vulnerable groups that needs our protection. with that thank you very much. >> so we are now going to hear from the hiv, aids network happen. and so i want to call up mick smith and two other people to do is a joint presentation after
and if they get real sick i can put them into the clinics and this client provides a lot of funds. the general medicine client can't provided the gateway into ucf services. they have no medication, no programs to help woman to professor from violence. if our program closes the gateway most of those woman and would be out of care or at san francisco general costing more money. we need our support to sustain the basic foundation of the cities services. because it's smart, cost saving financial investment into the health care of our community. >> thank you very much. next speaker >> hi i'm adrian and i came base i'm at usc for example i get treatment also a lot of community woman get treatment there and the cuts would mean they'd have no mental health care and no nutritional health care and a lot of our community depended on those services and without that they wouldn't go for medical care because everything is done under one appointment. i'm hopeful that you wouldn't cut those services. >> thank you very much. next speaker and thank you for the opportunity to speak. i'm katie i'm a psych heal
a resolving loan fund but we also partner with the nonprofits, the micro-lender nonprofits to provide micro-loans. legal resources. we have nonprofits that provide some legal resources. technical assistance. obviously you have met some of our key partners with our economic development organizations or as we -- as the city calls them we call them our neighborhood economic development organizations. that's our internal language for entities like womens' initiative. renaissance center, la cocina, urban solutions, working solutions, meta. and of course one of our key things that we need to talk to businesses about in terms if they're going into brick and mortar is ada compliance. making sure they're aware of potential aba liabilities that the property may have. tax credits associated with that. are they in a enterprise zone and can they engage in tax credits and what are the counseling services out there? we do see quite a few businesses that are already established but they want to know how do i become a certified vendor with the city and county of san francisco and we connect them with t
cashing entities to check their cash but maybe provide like a credit card that they replenish with their wages, and then any other sort of current programs or initiatives that we may have. in your packet i also provided -- we recently launched license 123 which allows a business to go on to our website. we offer our services monday through friday eight to five in city hall so there are people that are working and may not be able to access our services during that time so we launched license 123 to provide businesses with an overview what it maybe to licensing and permitting regulations so i just did a profile on a pizza shop and somebody wanted to open it and what it may involve in terms of the key licenses and permits, and as can you see there is a listing. some things we have listed as optional so under the department of public health you might -- you have the health department permit, but if they wanted to be a piss realia cooked on the inside and just a window and served then that is a take out,, so that maybe a different department of public health food establishment p
a humanitarian response but it also provided us an avenue for the state-wide partners, the civil hawaiian partners, to be able to exercise their exercise as well. this exercise also allowed us the opportunity to intro daus a lot of technology to help with the interoperatability of the civil military exercise. one of the main goals that we had for this was to allow our military a crisis response adaptive force package and opportunity to allow their training and certification in providing the most appropriate military expeditionary force for that scenario. one of the things that we realize in the military when we do these exercises in a foreign humanitarian response, that a lot of our military capabilities are not just for overseas foreign disasters but it also allows the military to be trained and certified to respond to local domestic disaster situations as well. i had mentioned that we had 22 nations participating in rimpac and this slide is a representation of the military and civilian partners that we had participating in this event. and we had many, many international partners and w
for placement. i will go that into the next slide. by providing programs, we have networking events and zammer and that provides the at some point to meet recruiters and talk about their skills which today's hiring managers are looking for employees to work with. they get to meet people who they might employ, they sit on our career panels and they come and do portfolio reviews for us as well. bay vac made it's name through media link. they learn basic tech skills that the dot com companies were in need of. they went to work for yahoo and adobe and many of those participants are employed with those companies today. today the team leaders like the companies in the slide that you see are sending their current employees to make sure their skills are up to date. they employ their employees for free at a state contract that we've had for 13 years. this is how bay vac has built relationships with those managers. many of them are start up like practice fusion and many are interactive bass the sector is as dynamic and many of those companies get bought by larger companies. they got bought by facebook a
can provide that to you. i don't know if i can read this. i need my glasses. let's see if i can point out. i can't read that. >> i think it good that you have this employee council. how many, i think it's great that they are helping with the preparing people for interviews and how they present themselves out there. how many of the 25 come from sf city, right now? >> sf city is really a -- they don't really employ anybody. the way sf city works is they are a convener of the employers and my understanding is the tech companies themselves, they are like a mini tech chamber where those companies pay a membership fee through sf city. but they don't themselves, sf city themselves, they don't employ anybody. they are an intermediary with the companies. what they have which is useful for us is relationships with a number of these companies and to the degree that we are able to work with them to leverage those relationships is how we partnered with them. >> okay. that makes sense. but i assume that the idea is that their members do employ, right? >> their members are the companies. they do emp
the program provides, a little bit more about how we got to the occupations that i'm about to get into as todd pointed out earlier, we've added a significant amount of high tech jobs for the overall bay area. i think 6000 new jobs in all. one of the things i want to point out about the program, san mateo also received a wif grant. it allows us to look at the industry from a regional perspective. we do have some of our students employed regionally, not just here in san francisco. we have partnered with them to share data. this is a rarity that you are able to do that around this industry to try to ensure that we understand what's happening in our neighboring counties and they know what's going on in san francisco. we did a labor comprehensive research which partnered with impact, we partnered with the community college system to really look at our industry. we've done a number of what we call round table convening. the most recent was january 15th whenever we invited a number of employers to understand about their current openings and what they can see in the future. coming up may 2nd, we'll d

at 255 broadway and making findings. >> this resolution is adopted. item 12 >> it's providing for a sale of interests in the rights to receive rental payments to finance capital payments at the moscone center and this resolution is adopted. >> item 13 is a resolution finding that 12 thousand square feet is acceptable for the law liable at 1200 van ness boulevard. >> thank you president including this came up again last week was a bit of a contiguous group. there are others who understand the importance of the law library. it's a law that requires that our law library is suitable space. right now the law library is in the memorial building. previously it was housed here in city hall and the memorial building is is going to be closed and all tenants have to be out by july. it's going to cost the city hundreds of dollars a month. this is suitable and sufficient and is going to a delegate the department to finalize the lease. they determined 22 thousand feet was sufficient and it includes compacting shelving for the law library. this passes unanimously. the controversies arose f
of the central city residents and they have great expertise in providing services for many of the homeless. potrero hill and southeast health centers are health centers in those particular communities that are family health centers, so they provide health care to patients across the age span. . >> many of our clients are working poor. they pay their taxes. they may run into a rough patch now and then and what we're able to provide is a bridge towards getting them back on their feet. the center averages about 14,000 visits a year in the health clinic alone. one of the areas that we specialize in is family medicine, but the additional focus of that is is to provide care to women and children. women find out they're pregnant, we talk to them about the importance of getting good prenatal care which takes many visits. we initially will see them for their full physical to determine their base line health, and then enroll them in prenatal care which occurs over the next 9 months. group prenatal care is designed to give women the opportunity to bond during their pregnancy with other women that hav
cursing this. as you provide feedback be specific about what it is your relating to not reacting how you feel about a certain politician in your district but i think we're going and hopefully, we'll be making some important modifications to our process but your land use politics will always be controversial. i want to thank the members of the community who have been raising issues and objections to the issues that supervisor wiener has put forth. i've had many meetings with persons in the community who have not been in agreement with supervisor wiener. i want to talk about categories of issues that can help narrow issues. what i have brought today is 9 amendments to supervisor wiener's legislation. i have copies if you want, you can get a copy but i think they address the line share. what i have heard thus far are issues about supervisor wiener's legislation. first there is some how supervisor wiener's would delegate certain amounts of people could be involved but i want to clarify that the board can abusive the project only after the sequa have been recommendation for the purpose of rel
technical assistance providers, which the city does fund, the office of small business our key role with business assistance center -- one is to help businesses navigate the licensing and permitting process and as you have heard from some of the presenters this evening that process can be expensive. how to go about it can be complicated and but what we also see are new businesses that are planning start so in our conversation with them at our counter we first assess have they done the business plan? do they know how they're going to finance the business? and in that conversation before we get into the licensing and the permitting regulations that they need to know we want to make sure they're starting off on solid footing so it's great that we have the san francisco economic development alliance, and we also are very fortunate to have the sba district office in san francisco because we get to be able to refer these businesses for free or very affordable resources to help them grow their business. perhaps the one drawback we see for every individual that we do counsel there really
. we have been providing council for the legal coalition for health and justice. i'm here to address how collateral agreements will strengthen the implement of the development agreement with cpm c. san francisco administrative code contemplates collateral agreements between government and coalitions. by the developer and/or other agencies and not limited to community coalitions to provide for and implement social and economic environmental benefits or programs. the development agreement with c p mr. m c in preventing it's community base terms for collateral agreements. advocating for the community benefits in the agreement. not only the community directly benefited from this project, the coalition continues to be committed that these fought for are carried out. because they have been so involved in the process of contributing to the terms, they are the best for the city when moving forward in the implementation terms. the gains for the city have been substantial in the negotiating process. it will come in the implementation of it's terms. the goal of the coalition and it's involveme
to provide residence in our streets from assistance with bilingual ambassadors who speak eight differently languages. the land which services department provides translation services and make sure that the public regardless of what language they speak a meaningfully participate. we also provide ongoing training and resource resources. and we have trained all city departments, language liaisons and provided community grants to service providers and partner closely with the language access network and other community-based organizations. we are also developing a community interpreter certification training program that we hope to launch later this year. this will provide opportunities for job skills development and help meet the needs of businesses, schools and the community in our city. finally i think that we should recognize some of the major departments, the department of emergency management, san francisco public utilities commission, the police department and the dept. of pub. health to name a few and many others who have significantly increase their efforts to better reach our diver

does not dispute took place that was provided in another way is a good faith search. but it is standard. >> i would think so. yeah. >> and the standard as we and the city departments applied it, there is also that there is a rule of reason, here, that the department have to make reasonable effort to find a document, but if you are receive a request, say for every e-mail from the last 20 years on the x, topic if it is unreasonably difficult to find, you should work with the requestor for figure out what the more narrow search could be. >> i think that general rule may also pertain to the back up tape question that you are flagging for a future day, the amount of resources and the effort that you are suggesting, would take. >> right. >> i think that we are not suggesting a policy out come. we are just saying that people ought to understand what they are required to do and what they are going to get, or where in between it gets decided whether to go that next step. >> i cannot find in here a requirement for a non-department head to maintain the records. >> and that may be because as mr. pi

>> thank you very much. i'm david mets. i'm here to provide you with a brief summary of the results that have survey. it's already been presented to members of the public utilities commission and i will move through it fairly quickly and answer questions you may have. you will see here the methodology of the survey, it tracts the survey that we have conducted for p u c and prior years and we have conducted many interviews in mid-february. those results were statistically weighted. the survey was conducted on land lines and in english, chinese and spanish to not exclude participation. the results of the survey we conducted last year in 2012 as well as an initial survey done in 2011. however, interpreting those results i want to draw cautions about differing methodologies which limit them being entirely apples to apples comparisons. first there's a number of places where we changed the word to go better reflect the substance of the program as it existed at the time of each survey. similarly there were predicted rates and that information shifted. this year for the first time we had a

mayor's office on housing and with affordable housing providers to allow us to pay subsidies and put services into affordable housing units so that the rents are lower, so that homeless people and people with disabilities can live in those units, and also get the support of services that they need in order to maintain the housing there. i don't have a lot of time but i took a look at number of seniors that we house so in our supportive housing program which is called direct access to housing we have 1600 units. at least 26% of the units are set aside for seniors so that earmarked for seniors. you have to be a senior 55 or older to get in. in reality 58% of residents are seniors and we have subsidies for people with hiv and we had people earlier testify going that and 41% and 72% of those units -- actually of those vouchers, of the subsidies are used by people over 50. that's probably no surprise but i want to give you those numbers. in our medical resident sobering center 35% of clients are over 55, and i was not able on short notice to find out how many of the people that we

appropriate that we have a former child care provider on our ranks with supervisor yee and i want to thank him for the next recognition. (applause) >> thank you. this is really an honor for me to be able to do this today. the week of the young child that just started sunday is celebrated by cities throughout the united states. and could i have the people that are going to be recognized, representatives -- all the representatives come up. evidence clearly shows that early years of the child's life are the learning years. early childhood education gives children a jump start on education for their kindergarten and elementary school years. according to many studies in recent years, the children who attend preschool do better in math and reading skills than children who do not attend. a child who attends an early education program also has increased cognitive skills at the beginning of the kindergarten. a study from the massachusetts institution of technology says that early education baits boosts the economy by providing jobs to nearly 3 million people nationwide. ~ those people then spend their
